I'm listening to Easter music this afternoon. No real reason. But a title caught my eye. The Tomb Is Empty Now. I have been thinking about that. It is very true. So...over two thousand years ago on that first Easter morning, the women who went to the tomb early in the morning discovered something very unusual. The tomb was empty. Now apparently there were such people as grave robbers because the women questioned where have they taken the body. But then, a heavenly being appeared and told them He is not here. Now if it was a common grave robbery, no one would have stayed behind to tell people the tomb that was occupied is no longer housing its resident.
Well, that is not the end of the story...you can go to Jerusalem today and outside the city is estimated where Jesus' grave was...and guess what...the tomb is empty still. Thank you, God, for keeping your promise and sending Your Son to be our sacrificial lamb. Our words are insufficient to express our full and unending gratitude for this gift of your unconditional, everlasting love.
